Merritt_Iron coverGrant Merritt will be at the Roseville Library on Thursday, August 23 at 7:00 p.m. for a discussion and signing of his new book, Iron and Water: My Life Protecting Minnesota's Environment, as part of the Ramsey County Historical Society's History Revealed Series.


Iron and Water is Grant J. Merritt’s memoir of his life’s work on behalf of Minnesota’s people and environment and also the story of a family significant in state history. Chronicling the discovery of vast iron deposits on the Mesabi Range and the fight to save Lake Superior and Minnesota’s natural riches, Merritt reveals how individuals can change the world.


"Iron and Water provides important information about Minnesota’s early environmental movement from someone who not only talked the talk but walked the walk. Grant J. Merritt’s involvement as a citizen activist, an environmental attorney, and the head of a state environmental agency offers significant insights into the efforts to protect the natural resources that have shaped Minnesota today." —Kevin Proescholdt, author of Glimpses of Wilderness


"In this beautifully told and often dramatic story, Grant J. Merritt’s singular voice narrates both a memorable family history and key battles to protect Lake Superior and other resources. Iron and Water is a monumental addition to our environmental literature." —Dave Dempsey, author and senior advisor at FLOW (For Love of Water)
